    You have to remove the primary cover to get at the jack shaft to remove it. I would replace the seal on the shaft while it is apart too.

    From there, it's pretty straight forward as far as unbolting the old starter and replacing it with the new one. Be sure to disconnect the battery cables before starting the job.
